Sign my petition to demand improved service by the MTA.

SEN. Steven D. Rhoads

When the MTA launched the Third Track, and the East Side Access projects they promised that the LIRR would be more convenient for commuters.  They also promised that commuter times would be shorter.  Once again, the MTA has overpromised and under-delivered.  The new train schedules have been a disaster for Long Islanders.  Commuters are also complaining about over-crowded trains that make too many stops.

The MTA promised riders a better faster experience when service finally went into Grand Central Station.  Nothing could be further from the truth. The Governor’s proposed budget includes an $800 million MTA Payroll Tax Hike planned for employers, local governments, and self-employed individuals. From eliminating eastbound trains during rush hour and increasing the time between trains to making individual commutes longer, the MTA’s new schedule is detrimental to our community. This is not right.  Rising taxes and fares should not be paid by commuters who stand on a train that takes longer to arrive at its destination.

Sign my petition to demand improved service by the MTA.

By working together we can make the MTA keep its promise of better, faster, more convenient service.
